No I can't....BUT - I'd recommend you take several photos of any jetski you hire (or anything else you hire for that matter) - this might protect you against any subsequent fallacious claims for damage.

Travel Tips for Ko Samui

Map of Koh Samui

by ATXtraveler

Koh Samui is located in Southern Thailand, and is located just off the Eastern coastline. Most of the time we spent on the island was on the northeastern corner, where the statue of Big Buddha, Chaweng Beach, and Mae Nam beach are located.

Spend a day in Koh Nangyuan

by tere1

Koh Nangyuan is a small island about 1 and a half hour from Koh Samui. It has great snorkeling and diving. It's lovely and there is only a resort there. You can get there taking a catamaran sped ferry which runs twice daily for 550 baht.

Another way of going there is to join a tour. There are several tours available in Samui to Koh Nanguyan, that have lunch and snorkeling gear included. It costs around 1.400 baht. Lomprayah is one of the tour operators.



Located 2km north of chaweng beach Samui airport is one of the most beautiful and graphic airports I have seen so far,with no indoor areas, two terminals (domestic and international) and rise palm roofs

Bang-Kao Seafood Restaurant

by austarman about Bang-Kao Seafood Restaurant

Bang-Kao is basically a small fishing village about 10km south along the coast from Lamai.
I had some very tasty and very fresh, BBQ fish and prawns here on two occasions during my two week stay in Samui.
The best food I had in Samui was here and the view looking out to sea at the smaller islands in the distance is awesome too. The BBQ fish may take a little while to come but when it does the fish very tasty.
I think my fish was red snapper but after a few Chang beers I can't quite remember..It was very fresh and tasty though as were the prawns. ;-)

Temple of the Big Buddha

by ATXtraveler

First, rather than call it by its commonly known name, the official name of this temple is Wat Phra Yai. It is also known as Hin Ngu Temple, but most people will see it on the English tour maps as "Big Buddha Temple".

Wat Phra Yai has a 12 meter tall statue of a sitting pose Buddha, which can easily be viewed by ship or by airplane. It is located on the Northeast tip of Koh Samui, and you can take Chaweng drive if you are headed straight to it from the airport.

The Buddha statue is in fact just gold paint, and definitely not one of the most wonderful sculptures, but the size and friendly smile definitely welcome you to the temple.
